Welcome to the Firewise Landscaping Online Course!

The Firewise Landscaping course is designed for people living in wildland areas who make decisions about landscaping their homes. This course introduces participants to a wide range of fire protection knowledge, and, further, it addresses the issues of appropriate landscape designs, specific planting and pruning alternatives, and appropriate planting materials for interface/intermix fire environments.

The Goals of the Firewise Landscaping Course are:

  1. 1. To increase awareness of fuels around the structure, and processes to remove those fuels.
  2. 2. To encourage the integration of FIREWISE concepts into home landscape design and maintenance.
  3. 3. To minimize the risk of structural loss to wildfire in the wildland/urban interface setting by providing the landscape decision maker with a better knowledge of the relationship between landscaping and effective wildfire mitigation.
